    I thought I'd share a little real world Nature's Wonders. Over the last 6 weeks we've been inundated with Painted Lady butterflies... literally thousands every day. This last weekend was no exception. With our almost entirely native Californian garden, there's a huge attraction to our yard (only 10% of native insects are only attracted to non-native plants) .

    Here's some photos of Painted Ladies on our native golden currants (and yes, those flowers will turn into delicious currant berries).

    Oh, the NY Times has an article about the mass migration of Painted Lady butterflies to California.

    Ken,

    the tree structure for the poser models differ from your usual tree structure for poser..

    there is an added Animals folder ...

    is this normal?
    as it moves away from all the other Natures Wonders products in the poser structure, it rather follows the DS tree structure.

    I liked how I've been doing the new Songbird ReMix libraries, so "Fish" reflect the way I'm going to do it from now on. Also, it's simpler to explain things once, DS and Poser now use the same folder structure-- plus, the fish and tins in this set load in character format anyways.

    On my runtime, I moved everything Nature Wonders to the characters folder. I'll eventually get around to changing the store copies.

    Such a deliciously fun and stinky project! The fish look fantastic!

    Nice work on the sardines! Any chance for a largemouth bass with mouth morphs? My Dad is a huge angler and does tournaments. Would love to do some renders of him fishing, sadly there are no quality bass models that I can find.

    I'll probably do some more fish in time. I know apart from mackerel (for my "Holy Mackerel" fish tin), I really want to do salmon and other type fish (for my eagles). A large mouth bass would probably find it's way into a set... but right now, it's all birds all the time as I move towards my Audubon event.

    They certainly do.

    Anything Ken touches is top quality, or he's not going to venture into that project.
